Am I Insane???
I just registered to do the Naperville Thanksgiving Day 5K Turkey Trot. 5K! That's 3.1 miles. To run. At least in theory. With just about two and a half months to train, I am fairly certain I won't be running the entire thing. But it gives me a goal to work for. Something to motivate me to go to the gym every day I am able and - here's the kicker - put maximum effort into my work out. I am actually pretty excited about it. The last and only other race I have ever run was the Brookfield Zoo Run Run when I was in sixth grade. I did it with my dad. I ran the whole thing. I was also in cross country at the time. Hopefully I won't die. I really like Thanksgiving dinner and would hate to miss it!
